Karma-Yoga : Ch-6. Part-22.
NON-ATTACHMENT IS COMPLETE SELF-ABNEGATION
Then things will be made clearer to us by our own power of perception and thought, and we shall realise them in our own souls; and that realisation will grow into the intense power of will.
First it is feeling, then it becomes willing, and out of that willing comes the tremendous force for work that will go through every vein and nerve and muscle, until the whole mass of your body is changed into an instrument of the unselfish Yoga of work, and the desired result of perfect self-abnegation and utter unselfishness is duly attained.
This attainment does not depend on any dogma, or doctrine, or belief.
Whether one is Christian, or Jew, or Gentile, it does not matter.
Are you unselfish?
That is the question.
If you are, you will be perfect without reading a single religious book, without going into a single mosque, church or temple.
Each one of our Yogas is fitted to make man perfect even without the help of the others, because they have all the same goal in view.
The Yogas of work, of wisdom, and of devotion are all capable of serving as direct and independent means for the attainment of Moksha.
"Fools alone say that work and philosophy are different, not the learned.”
The learned know that, though apparently different from each other, they at last lead to the same goal of human perfection.
